Child Protection Statement
The health, safety and well-being of all our children are of paramount importance to all the adults who work in our school. Our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, race, culture or disability. They have a right to be safe in our school.
At St Bartholomew’s we respect our children. The atmosphere within our school is one that provides a physically and emotionally safe and secure environment. We provide opportunities which enable our children to take and make decisions for themselves.
Our teaching of Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship (PSHE & C), as part of the National Curriculum, helps to develop appropriate attitudes in our children and helps them learn how to recognise different risks in different situations, and how to behave in response to them.
The Headteacher, Mr Dan Oakes, is the Designated Safeguarding Lead.
The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads are Mrs Rachel Bristow (Deputy Headteacher), Mrs Holt-Jackson (Assistant Headteacher) and Mrs Lorraine Diston (Early Help Co-ordinator).
